    Sweet, almost to the touch line after just 30 hours or something. Last time it was closer to 4 days!

    A full main and JT might get the Buffalo to 20 degrees of heel in 25 knots.

    And Philpott using the phrase "double handed carbon sled" makes me smile.

    To be clear, Jim was just the first to ping me at the turn.
    6 Brothers will update me shortly... I expect they will be headed back east.

    Default ALTHEA Retires and Returning

    Brian reports from hilltop VHF that ALTHEA is app 30 miles from the gate, inbound.
    ETA is 0100
    Brett's Starboard chain plate is reportedly compromised, hence the turn and heading for home on the other tack

    Positions 6 July 2000hrs

    ALTHEA and JACQUILINE retired; ALTHEA not yet returned from sea; no report but ETA 0100 Friday morning.

    GREEN BUFFALO, RIFF RIDER, and SIX BROTHERS have all reached the turnaround line and are heading back. Possibly others as well but I don't think so.

    This is way better than the Kentucky Derby because I know almost all the horses and most of the jockies. Ray Irvine says in Australia everybody bets on sailboat races. Maybe the SSS board could add a bookie position. Or a carbon bookie position.
